Super grateful for such an amazing family.
To my dad who gave it all up in Korea to start a brighter future for his kids in Canada. Came to this country knowing no English, grinded 60+ hours a week working restaurants, and convenient stores, opening and closing multiple restaurants, enduring failure after failure; eventually buying his first home after 20 years, and now running a truly successful restaurant. The definition of hardwork, discipline, dedication, and success.
To my mom who always showing us the definition of unconditional love. Always stuck by my dad even through the worst of times. Packed us lunches even though she was working full time. Even though you say you gonna give all your possessions to the church when you pass, we know you playing 😛
To my brother David Park who's my best friend in my life and my right hand man. Always has my back, works hard and gives it to me straight. We literally raised each other, had to learn how to cook, clean, and use the TTC at 10 years old by ourselves, parents gone till 9pm everyday working.
I remember us being so fucking broke we would eat Ramen noodles for daysssss. We had to beg the convenient store to let us burrow eggs and milk for a week cause we had literally $0 cash. Now we eating Grazie at 10pm for no good fucking reason on a Tuesday.
Family is family, we have our differences but it's all love at the end of the day. I used to think about how hard my parents were on me or how annoying my brother would be; but looking back now it's made me who I was and I wouldn't have it any other way. #day2grattitude#alllove
Today is a very special day for me. One I'll remember for the rest of my life.
Two years ago, on the same day, November 18th, for the first time in my life I left the comfort of my beloved city, Cebu, and flew to Toronto not just to reach my dreams but to discover how far I can go professionally and spiritually.
As expected, nothing was ever easy but I had faith in my skills, abilities and my God. I went through hardships that I never would have and could have ever imagined experiencing in my life. There were times when I question myself and my creator why I had to experience such things but I never faltered. I picked myself up and one by one I overcame what life has thrown at me.
Now I feel so blessed to have fulfilled one of my goals, but I'm not done yet. I will continue to strive hard to reach all the dreams I have for myself and my family and beat any hardship that come my way.
#Toronto will always have a special place in my heart. The city where I learned to love photography. The city I associate with success amidst the cold.
Unknown deep fear
＠ 5 nightmares
Subconscious mind as a deep dark hole
I fell as free fall,
I screamed to cry,
I climbed up, using my own hands
finally back to my bed room
feeling cold in the warmness
again and again
